If you are eligible for the Kesimpta patient assistance program, the cost of your medication will be free. We only charge $49 per month for each medication, to cover our service fees. You could receive your Kesimpta prescription for just $49 a month, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Kesimpta patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Kesimpta patient assistance program. Each program has its eligibility criteria which are set by the pharmaceutical companies, however, the factors considered by most programs are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Kesimpta patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Kesimpta patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Kesimpta. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Kesimpta assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Kesimpta patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Kesimpta medication refills for up to 1 year.

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Kesimpta against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Kesimpta to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Kesimpta drug interactions

Kesimpta can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Immunosuppressive or immune-modulating therapies – immunosuppressant drugs, including systemic corticosteroids, may increase the risk of infection. Risk of additive immune system effects when coadministering immunosuppressive therapies. When switching from therapies with immune effects, the duration and mechanism of action of these therapies should be taken into account because of the potential additive immunosuppressive effects

This list is not exhaustive and other prescription drugs may interact with Kesimpta. Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
